Downton Abbey (DVD DOW E)

When PBS Masterpiece ran the series Downton Abbey last winter, it was a sensation. Millions of viewers tuned in for four episodes to follow the life of the aristocratic Crawley family and their servants in their big Edwardian mansion. Many were drawn to watch the interactions upstairs and downstairs of 20 well-defined characters. Obviously, fans of the classic series Upstairs Downstairs were hooked. The only problem was PBS cut numerous scenes to make the program meet its time constraints. The final episode was especially disjointed, and some viewers became a bit confused by the rapid conclusion.

There is a fix for the confusion. The library has Downton Abbey on DVD with all the scenes! The viewing experience on the final episodes in particular is much finer. With PBS about to show the second series in January, this is a perfect time to watch the complete first series. – Review by Rick
